My brother gave me one of his 7970's, because his machine became FUBAR, and he told me that when he wanted to sell them, I'd have to look for a new card. That being said, I really don't know what to do. I know I don't want to pick a current gen card, but I don't know what the price will be for the next gen AMD cards. So, throw some suggestions out here. Any help would be appreciated.


tl;dr I need a new card. Current gen or wait?

He's selling his cards now. Should've made that a bit clearer.

Depends on how much you want to spend. The R9 280X is a 7970 GHz edition for 299. The 270X would also be a good choice for 199. The new cards should be out soon

Not really sure I have much an actual budget. Suggest me cards, whether they be NVIDIA or AMD.

I just bought a Sapphire 7970 Dual-X and love it. Getting great performance in BF4 beta nad BF3 runs flawlessly. Haven't went above 62* as well. I highly recommend that card. Comes with 3 free games too!
